Stuart Dallas scored an injury-time winner as 10-man Leeds United triumphed over runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Dallas gave Leeds a surprise lead three minutes before the break with a low shot hit the inside of the city post after good work from Helder Costa and Patrick Bamford on the left.
However, the dismissal of skipper Liam Cooper for a dangerous tackle on Gabriel Jesus before the first half was over appeared to have given the visitors an impossible task.
City came out of the second-half all guns blazing with Illan Meslier making a few fine stops especially from midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko. It wasn’t until the 76th minute that City hit the equaliser when Ferran Torres hit his first league goal since December.
With key man Kevin De Bruyne rested on the bench City failed to capitalize on their man advantage, before came up with the winner from a superb flowing counter-attack when Ezgjan Alioski’s through ball was picked up Stuart Dallas and the midfielder raced clear to slot home to score his second and his sixth league goal of the season.Embed from Getty Images
The result means Leeds climb up to ninth place on 45 points, and still with an outside chance of qualifying for an unprecedented European place. Manchester United can cut City’s lead to eight points if they win their games in hand against Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley.
However, Pep Guardiola’s men must take 11 points from their remaining games to secure a third league title in four seasons.
